Walking Out of the World

by Jim Rapp

When he said, “Foxes
have dens, birds have nests, Jesus
wasn’t complaining;

He knew in advance
that his own people would not
offer him a bed;

They did not intend
to give him the dignity
of a proper grave.

So it was not a
surprise that foxes and birds
had what he had not.

It was a warning
to those who thought they could
have it both ways;

Walk in Jesus’ train
in the light of day, and sleep
in their bed at night.

His calling was to those
who dared take up a cross and
walk out of the world.

He found twelve who said
they could – but one turned back to
find his earth-clad bed.
